[Recipe] Super (disappointing) Bowl XLVIII: Stuffed Jalapenos wrapped in bacon

Anyone who watched the Broncos vs. Seahawks in the super bowl this year knows how painful it was to watch, especially those rooting for Peyton Manning like we were. The commercials weren’t even that great. Thank goodness for the Puppy Bowl, am I right?

Aside from the lackluster football game, the spread of food was phenom {nom-nom} enal.

If you’re anything like me and have a mild obsession with all things cheese, then you will love these stuffed jalapenos wrapped in bacon:
